Bill To “Shut Down Most Gun Shops” Headed To Illinois House

posted on May 4, 2016

The Illinois State Rifle Association is warning gun owners about a bill that is expected to come up for a vote in the state House this week. In the group’s urgent alert, leaders note that it would “shut down most gun shops” in the state. 

While final details of the legislation have yet to be released, it’s expected to require gun dealers—already FFL holders—to acquire a license from the state to operate. Mandated within that license would be the requirement that every gun and ammunition purchase be videotaped, and the video would be turned over to police. 

In addition, licensed dealers would be forced to install state-of-the-art vaults and alarms. The $2 million tab for these high-end security systems would serve to drive most smaller shops out of business.

Use Your Power!

A similar piece of legislation was recently rejected in California, so let’s make sure it’s rejected in Illinois, too. Contact your state senator or state representative and tell them you oppose any legislation that would license firearm retailers.
